Beadin Path Beading Challenge

You HAD to know that when I was on vacation a few weeks ago in Maine, I'd be talking to Heather at The Beadin' Path about doing a big blog challenge!  Heather brought me upstairs to the Special "Stock room" at the shop. Boy was I in HEAVEN!! Together we picked out some cool vintage lucite to use in the challenge. The team at Beadin Path put together kits with these beads, and they will be available starting today, on their website! AVAILABLE HERE!

Purchase your lucite kit ($32), and craft something fabulous with the beads. Try to use any many beads in the kit as you can. Bring in beads from your own stash too!  We'll have a big blog hop reveal On September 21st. That will give you 26 days to purchase the kit, create with the beads and blog your creations.  Please leave a comment on this post if you plan on participating in this fun event!!

Better act fast, there are only a limited amount of kits available! While you're on their site, check out some of the other fabulous beads and components like these New Arrivals! Lots of cool things to add to your kit if you want to really go nuts!


The kit includes the following beads: 3 large black Lucite flowers, 3 gunmetal finish flower metal components, 3 moonglow Lucite shank buttons, an 8 inch length of Lucite chain in turquoise, 30 candy apple red Lucite barrels, 12 moonglow turquoise barrels, and 25 coral orange Lucite coins.

Just think of all the fun things you could do with these beads!! Think COLOR! Think CHUNKY! Think FUNKY! Think FUN!

I'm already getting started on my finished piece! I hope you'll want to join in on the fun!

    1. Absolutely!! That's why I pushed back the reveal day so late in September, in case people want to join in from other countries.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
